Founded in 1519, Havana is one of the oldest cities in the Americas. This walking tour takes you through its beautiful colonial heart, a UNESCO World Heritage Site with enchanting cobbled streets, historic plazas and fascinating cultural relics. Your English-speaking guide will immerse you in the city’s rich past as you visit impressive Spanish forts, the graceful former governor’s residence, the impressive mansions of the colonial trading elite, and the grand Baroque-style Cathedral of Havana. Explore the city’s centuries-old squares, each with its own distinct history, and discover the City of Columns’ most bizarre and exciting legends.
